His videos are very detailed and give a lot of great info, but could really use a highlight reel to tell the story in just a minute or two!

My patience runs thin with a lot of youtube stuff.  There really isn't much that couldn't be explained in 2 minutes.  I watched a video on how to change a timing belt in 3 minutes, and I did it.

Agreed, though if shortened too much there might seem a lack of credibility, no?

Timing belt in 3 minutes? Now THAT'S an accomplishment!!! :-)

Oh Blue,   I watched a 3 minute video.  The timing belt took 2 hours.  Can't slip one past you!  Wouldn't have taken so long if the company sent me the right tensioner!

We saw that there was a short version of the EGO vs. ECHO battery teardown by the same guy here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANVL2aFDVqw

Yeah, I saw that one too. I think maybe it could have been planned a little better from the start, the short one is pretty compressed, and the long one is LONG.

This video made me laugh. Nice job echo. Way to falsely advertise voltage and charge times.

It is funny to watch.  Try to explain what we all just saw to the average consumer in a Home Depot store.
